DEUX FURIEUSES – Back With Crystal Clear Anti-Establishment Single ‘SILENCED BY THE ROAR’…

‘Silenced By The Roar’ by DEUX FURIEUSES

After last year’s excellent and highly praised powerhouse debut album TRACKS OF WIRE
– one of the best LP’s on my 2016 list – outspoken and socially caring London-based duo DEUX FURIEUSES is back with brand new digital single SILENCED BY THE ROAR. The two vital savages, Ros Cairney (guitar, vocals) and Vas Antoniadou (drums, vocals), clarify the fury behind the fresh, cutting post-Brexit track : “it is about the ascendancy of the English ‘roar’, how we feel increasingly silenced by the government’s ‘Crush the saboteurs’ mentality and let down by ‘piss poor politicians’ who are unable to articulate a response to the failures of democracy and the big issues of our times. The song ends with a rallying cry of intent
influenced by protests we have been part of outside Downing Street
.”

This gloriously noisy and sharply observant tandem realize perfectly that our daily life
is affected by politics, that politics dominate society 24/7. And as dangerous and idiotic politicians rule this troubled world today DEUX FURIEUSES step up – again – and use
their vivacious voice and sonic vehemence to ventilate their justified critical anger and social concern. This is an important band. This is a crystal clear frustration stroke…


.
If you dance with the devil
You’re gonna get burned
Are you ready for the sound
Of tables being turned?
Enemies of the people
Stand up to hate
Citizens of nowhere
Die at the gate
We’re all just sleepwalking into hell

England has roared
Silence the hope
Red lines are crossed
Give me the rope
We’re all just sleepwalking into hell
Give me some hope
We can break the spell
Just say the word
And we’re hypnotised
This world’s a mess
And we’re paralysed

Trick of the light
Twist of the tongue
Looks like the truth
Is not for everyone

We will not be silenced
We will not be silenced

We’re all just sleepwalking into hell
Give me some hope
We can break the spell
Just say the word
And we’re hypnotised
This world’s a mess
And we’re paralysed

We will not be silenced
By history repeating
We will not be silenced
By racist propaganda
We will not be silenced
By piss poor politicians
The will of the people
Is not what I believe in
